This February we launched our first ever Southport Restaurant week, celebrating Southport’s restaurants with exciting offers, events and limited time menus
Following feedback from several venues wanting to create a way to showcase and promote restaurants out of season we decide on a highlight week similar to successful ideas in other towns and cities. The week was advertised digitally throughout Southport and surrounding areas through targeted digital newspaper advertising and extensive paid and organic social media campaigning. A dedicated website was set up which showcased each individual restaurant and their offer southportrestaurantweek.co.uk
The campaign was backed by Visit Southport and featured across their website
Over quarter of a million people were reached by the Facebook advert alone and a further 45,000 saw the targeted advert in Reach PLC online publications. Hundreds visited the website seeing the profiles of the restaurants involved.
There were over 2o participating restaurants and over 30 + offers. Feedback has been positive from restaurateurs and there is an appetite for a second week late this summer should we secure a second term. Please follow us on Facebook or look out here for more information later in the year
